Delhi High Court: Pratibha M. Singh, J., addressed a matter wherein CBSE informed the Bench that the students who appeared for CBSE 12th Board Examinations and whose results will be declared late, the deadline for applying re-evaluation will accordingly be extended.
Present petition was filed by a student who appeared for his 12th CBSE Board Examinations in 2019-20 who secured 95.25%.
In order to improve his scores, petitioner had applied for improvement exams and decided to drop a year and had further applied to take the improvement exams in 4 subjects. However, his Business Studies exams which was to be held on 24th March, 2020 could not be held due to the nation wide lockdown due to COVID-19 Pandemic.
Main grievance of the petitioner was that despite the 3 exams being taken by him, result of the said three improvement exams was not declared by CBSE.
Counsel for the CBSE, Amit Bansal submitted the results of all the regular students appearing for the CBSE Examinations have already been declared only the ones who had appeared for improvement exams are left in regard for their results to be declared.
On seeking instructions from CBSE, it was informed that the stated results will be declared before 27-07-2020.
Concerns placed by the Counsel, Manchanda were that, the petitioner had to update his registration with the Delhi University where he intended to pursue his undergraduate studies and the deadline for re-evaluation as fixed by CBSE ends today i.e. 20-07-2020.
Counsel for the CBSE submitted in response that the students whose results will be declared late, the deadline for applying re-evaluation will accordingly be extended.
